WASHINGTON – Chelsie Redalen has been promoted to director of government relations by the National Pork Producers Council in its Washington, D.C., public-policy office. Redalen had been deputy director of government relations.

“Chelsie has been a tremendous asset to our policy team and to America’s pork producers,” said Audrey Adamson, N.P.P.C. vice president of domestic policy issues and head of the D.C. office. “She has been a tireless advocate on Capitol Hill for the U.S. pork industry, and this promotion is well-deserved.”

Redalen will continue to work with Chris Wall, N.P.P.C. assistant vice president of government relations, as the organization’s top lobbyist. She will focus on competitive market and science and technology issues, including food safety, antibiotics and animal-health matters.
During her nearly four years with N.P.P.C., Redalen has helped build its grassroots programs and grow its political action committee – PorkPAC – overseeing almost a doubling in contributions.
